OREANDA-NEWS  Former US President Donald Trump's lawyer predicted that the impeachment procedure could lead to "tearing the country apart." This information is reported by the New York Post news agency.

In his opinion, the impeachment process could lead the United States to a position in the country as during the Civil War of 1861-1865. Donald Trump's lawyer believes that due to the trials over the politician, "new wounds" in the country may open, which will negatively affect the future of the country. The presidential spokesman also criticized Trump's accusers from the House of Representatives, according to the lawyer, they only hide behind a desire for unity.

On January 14, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to impeach Donald Trump over the riots in Washington. The last vote was the second attempt to remove Trump from office. Democrats motivate the decision to impeach the politician, including by the fact that after the process is over, he will no longer be able to run for president. This is the first time the US has attempted to remove a state leader from office after the end of his presidential term.
